Construction Standards

Dorothy Baldwin Dorothy Baldwin of Wildwood, Florida believes that her decision to buy from Cook over other portable shed manufacturers may have saved her life on a stormy July night. Watch the video above to hear her amazing story.
“We bought from Cook and we thought that our shed was a well-made shed. Never had any problem with it and well worth the price! In fact, we moved and are looking to buy another one. With the convenient payment plans, I think most people can afford the quality of a Cook Portable Warehouse. (From a satisfied customer.)”April I.

“Hi! I purchased a portable warehouse from y’all in August, that was finished off on the inside and had electrical, etc – and I had stated that I wanted it for opening a small photography studio! Was just letting you guys know that we completely transformed it back in August! We painted, put new floors, the whole nine yards. Thanks again, I LOVE it and couldn’t be happier.”Corinth F.

“It does meet our Hurricane standards. Just seeing those hurricane straps, in my mind, says there is somebody within this company who cares about what they’re building.

There is no doubt in my mind that we are happy with Cook Portable Buildings and wouldn’t hesitate to call on them again if the need ever arose.”George Manemann

“I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my new shed. The quality of workmanship is by far superior compared to other sheds I saw at Lowes, Home Depot and others. I was also happy with my dealings with your salesman in St. Augustine, Florida and your delivery driver. He called before the delivery and was right on time.”
Janice H.
“Our shed arrived as quoted and the craftsmanship is beautiful. The delivery driver was very good at his job, a true professional. I will and have been recommending Cook Portable Buildings to all my family and friends and posted pictures on my media pages. Thank you once again.”Ken and Sharon Burke

“After looking at a Cook, I went elsewhere in the surrounding area looking at other competitor’s storage facilities. But each time I looked at other buildings, I kept coming back to a Cook.
Why? It was because of the customer service, the quality, the price and especially the warranty.”Mike Wilson

Sales Representatives and Dealers

“So happy with my experience. After looking at several places, decided to go with them. So friendly, so precise, and informative.”
Leslie-Lynn Kremin
“The salesperson was honest, personable, informative and wasn’t pushy.”Daniel M.
“I have never been treated better by any company! Everyone at the Cook offices have gone out of their way to help me. I felt like we were family trying to help each other solve a problem.”
Judith G.
“I wanted to relay to you how happy I have been dealing with him from the moment we drove into your dealership in Mulberry. Rob (Cook Dealer) was very informative and in no time we had the shed selected that meet our needs. Since then he has been very prompt and informative with every question about delivery, setup, permit information, etc.

It is a pleasure meeting and dealing with a person of his caliber. All too often these days really good customer service is lacking at many places. Rob presents himself very well and is an excellent representative for your company.”

“Bob was real good with me as far as with the sales and as far as taking me out to the buildings and showing me which would work best for what I was looking for. Everything went really smooth.”Bob Smithers

“I would like to take this time to tell the owner of Cook buildings that you have a lot of good employees working for you, from a customers’ view. Starting with Bob, my salesman, to Michael, to one really good delivery/set-up person, Matt. His professionalism and skills were amazing. Very well organized and set-up went really quick.

The quality of the Garden Shed is amazing. Also, being retired military, I would like to thank you for what you do for the troops.”

B. Smiths
“We would like to thank you for taking the time to personally come from Georgia to address our on-going problem with our shed. We wanted you to know how much we appreciate your kindness, professionalism and going above and beyond anything we ever expected.

You went far past the extra mile. I can’t imagine after such a thorough inspection and complete work over that we will have any more leaking. Yet we are encouraged now that it would be addressed in a professional manner.”Kirk and Gisela Meldrum

“My husband and I had Cook Portable Warehouses build us a portable building for storage. The ordering was very easy and they offer many options on the outside as well as on the inside. We’ve had it for 8 years and we have never had any problems with the quality. There hasn’t even been a leak or a drop of rain water that has gotten into the building. Very professional service from ordering it to the delivery company that delivered it. They put it in the exact location that we needed it to go. Their customer service representatives are also very professional, very knowledgeable and very courteous. Thanks Cook Portable Warehouses for the professionalism of your employees and the quality of your buildings.”Alicia Givens
“I just purchased a Cook shed and would like to tell you how absolutely satisfied I am with the entire experience.

First off, I should say the shed is in a difficult location and I wasn’t sure how to go about it. Susan, who runs the Crestview, FL location, was very knowledgeable and helpful about picking out exactly what I wanted.

Barry, who did the site survey, had some great suggestions and warnings about potential locations.

Paul, who delivered the shed, did a fantastic job maneuvering it down a slope into a tight corner, as it started to rain no less.

I can’t endorse your product and operation enough. “Curtiss Knowles

The Delivery and Set-Up Process

Ken Primeaux

“Wanted to let you know how happy and pleased I was with Cook delivery driver Phillip. My delivery day was Thursday but on Wednesday afternoon Phillip called and asked if there was any way that I would accept my building that day. A day early! I told him “heck yeah” bring it to me! He arrived a little later and was so professional and very upbeat. He parked my building where I wanted it and had no issues.

This is my second Cook building in as many years. Both times from the beginning of the ordering process to the delivery, it has been one positive event after the next! And Phillip finished up this last building on a very high note for me. Cook buildings rock!”Ken Primeaux

“I love Cook Portable Warehouses! The delivery man was so polite and I am very impressed with the way the building is built. Just a great bunch of people all around.”Michelle S.
“You guys are awesome. I ordered my 10 x 16 shed yesterday thinking it wouldn’t be delivered and set-up by the end of next week. Got a call a couple hours later saying you could deliver and set it up today. Went home for lunch and signed the papers, now I am ready to store my stuff. Thanks so much.”Kelly P.
“I just wanted to take a moment and thank Cook Portable Warehouses for the great service I received. While I purchased from an independent dealer, Cook employees soon took over the transaction.

First, I was contacted by several employees who went over my order for verification. My building was delivered on July 7, 2014 as it had been scheduled. The driver, Tommy Lumpkin, was great. I have never seen a one-man operation before and was truly impressed. Tommy did a great job of placing the building where I wanted it and set it up perfectly.

When he left there was no sign of him having been there. His equipment was in great shape and performed flawlessly also. Again, I just wanted to say thank you to the employees I came in contact with. I also hope you will express my thanks to Tommy for a great job.”
Walt Blackstock

“Our garage was delivered today. The delivery person was exceptional, he unloaded and placed the building perfectly in the marked area with a constant smile and friendly attitude. We were completely happy with him.

The sales team at the Tool Dome in Sebring, Florida worked with us to get the building ordered and arranging the delivery for this week we would be back in Florida. Steve called us in Vermont to keep us up-to-date on the whole process and had the delivery scheduled on our preferred date. They were very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions about the building, pricing and delivery. It was a pleasure to work with them.”

Mr. and Mrs. Forbes
“My family was treated to exceptional customer service that went above and beyond, while arranging to move our building. I was contacted by Will at Cook and scheduled the move. However, the Texas Department of Transportation wouldn’t issue a permit because the building had to pass through a construction zone. Will kept me informed as he tried different avenues to obtain the moving permit.

Eventually an area engineer authorized the move. Cook driver Jimmy volunteered to work a Saturday to complete the delivery. He arrived at the pick-up site with plenty of time, carefully maneuvered the trailer, off-loaded the building, made sure it was properly leveled and performed some repair work.

Will and Jimmy were very professional and patient during the entire ordeal. The two men exemplified Cook’s promise of exceptional customer service and are a true asset to your company. Thanks to them for the great experience.”

Darryl White
” I received the shed and I’m very happy! Your driver – I believe his name was David Allan – he’s very good. He placed it exactly where I wanted it, leveled it, and I’m very happy with the construction and quality of the shed.

Sir, thank you again and thank you for producing a high quality product…I will highly recommend your product to friends and family.

Thanks again for getting the shed here early!”

Thanks,Galen Stone

“My wife and I would like to pass along our appreciation for Jonathan Farris, who was the driver who delivered our shed this morning. His kind and professional demeanor as well as his skill and pride in his work made him a blessing to have at our home.”
Greg & Lisa Smith
Hey Rob, thanks for helping me out with the shed. It’s really nice and is going to work out well. I also wanted to recognize Robert for doing a great job delivering and placing it in the yard. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great experience.

“I ordered a 10 x 12 shed and it was specially built per my wishes. The delivery driver drove all the way from Georgia to bring it to Florida. Where other than Cook Portable Warehouses can you get customer service like that? That is unheard of in today’s world.”Izzy Fereale
“VERY pleased with both the building and the driver. There was no fuss, no mess and the driver took MAYBE 20 minutes to put the building exactly where I asked him to put it.

Good work!!

Thanks again.”Daniel Dale
